My dad ran across the name Allifair ([name]Al[/name]-uh-fair) when he was doing some research on the historic Hatfield [name]McCoy[/name] feud. He thought it was pretty and suggested it for our new baby (we like avant garde, underused names), and I hated it at first. After milling it over for two weeks, I strangely have come to really like it. I did some more research on the name, and ran across several geneaological spellings of it from around the turn of the 1900’s. Can you tell me which spelling you think looks prettiest and most pronounceable:
There was a movie of the feud from 1949 called [name]Roseanna[/name] [name]McCoy[/name], and an actress named [name]Gigi[/name] Perreau played the role of Allifair [name]McCoy[/name] in the film. Unfortunately, that Allifair met an untimely death during the feud, but we think the name is quaint, pretty, and not at all being used today.
So, how do you like it spelled? Thanks a bunch!
